SEPTEMBER 20 to 30, 2012
THURSDAY September 20th 2012
On Thursday concentration is difficult when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to nebulous Neptune. You may find yourself lost in dreams which, of course, means that this is a good day for meditation and magical work. You may have a hard time focusing, so just let your dreams take over.
FRIDAY September 21st 2012
On Friday the work week ends on a volatile note when Mercury goes opposite to unpredictable Uranus and forms a square to stubborn Capricorn Pluto. A casual remark is all it takes to set off a volcano of aggravation and conflict. On the global level, this means a minor incident can result in major consequences. In your own life, it means you need to be very careful not to rile anyone — or allow yourself to be upset by others.
SATURDAY September 22nd 2012
On Saturday the EQUINOX occurs shortly before 8 a.m. Los Angeles Time, which is 4 p.m. in the UK and about midnight in Sydney. This is when we celebrate the PERSEPHONEA when the Sun enters the first degree of Libra. In the Northern Hemisphere this is the Autumnal Equinox ushering in autumn. For our brothers in the Southern Hemisphere, this is the Vernal Equinox and spring is on the way — the jacarandas will soon be in bloom. Wherever you live, this is one of two days each year when daytime and nighttime are equal. It is time to reflect on balance in your own life. And you should also reflect on business and career opportunities because this is the CAPRICORN FIRST QUARTER MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic, we call this the MERCHANT MOON which offers you an opportunity to reap the benefits of your hard work — and find new opportunities for material advancement.
SUNDAY September 23rd 2012
On Sunday you feel itchy to get outside and go somewhere or do something, but your plans keep going awry and things don't go the way you have planned. That's because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is aligned with rebellious Pluto and also forms right angles to Mercury and Uranus. It will be a roller-coaster ride. So the best thing is just to strap yourself in and enjoy the unexpected thrills and spills.
MONDAY September 24th 2012
On Monday the work week gets off to an ambitious and no-nonsense start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a productive sextile to go-getting Mars and squares off against workaday Saturn. You will want to roll up your sleeves and get down to diligent work.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY September 25/26th 2012
On Tuesday and Wednesday good fortune is in the air when Jupiter/Moon/Mercury are aligned in a formation called a Grand Trine. This is a highly harmonious and fortuitous alignment, especially in social communications and money matters.
THURSDAY September 27th 2012
On Thursday sexual dreams and visions are the order of the day when Venus and Mars are at right angles and ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in positive configurations to Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. It is a day when your sex fantasies bump up against reality. The upside is that you finally meet your online partner. The downside is that you may wish you hadn't.
FRIDAY September 28th 2012
On Friday the work week ends in frustration. You may feel burned out and sapped of energy when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to Jupiter. Thank the God it's Friday!
SATURDAY/SUNDAY September 29/30th 2012
Overnit Saturday/Sunday the ARIES FULL MOON reminds you that the calendar may say it is autumn, but you can still sow some wild oats! But be careful: In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the LIGHTNING MOON for the bolt of lightning which nearly killed Hadrian and Antinous atop Mount Cassius in autumn of the year 129 AD. The LIGHTNING MOON is the most impetuous and accident-prone moon of the year. This weekend things are particularly risky because the Moon is aligned with chaotic Uranus and both are in opposition to the Sun — and all three are at right angles to turbulent Pluto. That means the Sun and Moon are caught up in the Uranus/Pluto power struggle that has been going on all summer. Uranus or Ouranus is the ancient God of the Heavens and Pluto/Hades is the Classical God of the Underworld. And they are now in conflict at right angles to each other. They have been moving into and out of this square aspect for months, and will continue to do so. The result is turmoil on all levels. Earthquakes, political and financial tremors, and even rumblings in your own personal life. The feverish rioting and bloodshed in the Mideast and the equally turbulent turmoil on global financial and economic markets are expressions of the clash of these two Gods.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between October 1st and 7th when Venus leaves fiery Leo and enters dutiful Virgo, signalling six weeks of humility and unselfish dedication in interpersonal relationships. Also next week, Jupiter does a turnaround and goes Retrograde (backwards as seen from Earth) for the next six month, ushering in half a year of introspection and review. As if that were not enough — Mercury, Mars and Saturn all three changes signs next week. More details next time ....
